Hi

Following the amazing success of the last plant id request, I have another I don't know:

This isn't in my garden image but in the grounds of the Cathedral. It is taller than me (5foot 10) and really rather lovely. Anyone know what it is? If it is worth it I might try to pinch some seeds when it gets to that point image

    Red Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora) image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Looks like a phormium to me - not sure if they will grow from seed in our climate .... But nothing ventured etc ....

    Phormium

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Before the frost got it, mine used to flower like that. Then it has flat black shiny seeds.

    Should I add one to the white buddleja? Not sure how you'd get it home,it's in a bucket sized pot. And it's variegated. If I remember I'll take a pic tomorrow.

    I'd have said phormium but I don't know the Hesperaloe

    Flowers are wrong for hesperaloe.
